What is the LT Exchange Programme?
A collaboration between Learning Technologies and Towards Maturity, the Exchanges Programme was launched in 2011 with the aim to share effective practice, thought leadership and stimulate innovation in L&D.
Informal, face-to-face group discussions, the Exchanges Programme tackles the issues facing today’s L&D leaders: supporting change, leveraging networks, mobile and micro and how to get ahead with technology in 2017. Lasting for one hour, each Exchange is led by an industry-leading expert who is speaking at the conference and is available to all L&D practitioners visiting the exhibition.
Clive Shepherd leading one of the Exchanges last year.
This year’s Exchanges will be co-hosted by Training Journal and the programme includes: Mark Britz, performance strategist and author of ‘The Simple Shift’ blog, Andrew Hurren together with Laura Overton, author of 40+ major research reports, Harold Jarche author of ‘What do we do about inequality?’ and more, Clive Shepherd who’s most recent publication is titled ‘More Than Blended Learning’, John Stepper author of ‘Working Out Loud’, Julian Stodd, author of ’The Social Leadership Handbook’, Will Thalheimer, author of ‘Performance-Focused Smile Sheets: A Radical Rethinking of a Dangerous Art Form’ and Emma Weber, author of ‘Turning Learning into Action: A Proven Methodology for Effective Transfer of Learning.’

Jenny Lycett thinks it’s high time that everyone owns learning, not just the L&D department. “I think there are plenty of benefits from organisations seeing L&D as a shared responsibility and I think this is a huge change from what we’ve seen in the past,” she says.
